Casual Valentine’s Day Outfit + DIY Heart Manicure

My husband and I are planning to spend Valentine’s Day relaxing at home, eating a delicious dinner, and enjoying some wine. It’s my favorite way to spend the day!

Even though we’ll be staying in, I still want to wear something cute. Here’s what I have in mind:

Casual Valentine's Day Outfit + DIY Heart Manicure | Hello Little HomeThis has been a snowy, dark winter, so I’m brightening things up with spring colors, which are perfect for Valentine’s Day by the way!

My outfit was inspired by this mint green boyfriend cardigan. I love this soft, springy color!

It works perfectly with the lacey blouse.

My favorite jeans and boots keep things casual, and of course, I had to add some fun jewelry.

I was feeling matchy-matchy, so I manicured my nails with mint green polish and added a little heart nail art on one nail.

The heart was super easy. First, I polished my nails with Essie Mint Candy Apple. When the polish was mostly dry, I simply used a toothpick to carefully draw on the heart with Julep Sienna.

  1. Your outfit is perfect for a casual date -in! I’m obsessed with mint right now, for myself and my newborn daughter…it’s just such a fresh, beautiful colour. Looks great on you! And I love the gold heart detail…I’ll have to borrow that idea 🙂 Thanks so much for popping by The Best of this Life today. Great to connect and I’ll be back around soon.

  2. This is all so cute. I often decorate for Valentin’s by going through the house and collecting all the hearts I can find then make a display of them. The first time I did this, I was surprised by how many hearts I had!
